Despite calling the disorder ADHD in the intro, he calls it ADD throughout the rest of the book. Despite saying that ADHD affects men and women in equal numbers in the intro, soon after in the book he says that it affects men three times more than women. The research he describes is largely from the early nineties or before, despite the explosion of new ADHD research findings in the past 22 years (although there is updated medication information).
This makes me angry because the author's grab for money in releasing an "updated" version of a book about a disorder that is hardly updated at all is unacceptable and negligent. Clinicians and patients will read this inaccurate/unupdated information and not deliver or receive the best treatment they could potentially have. Dr. Hallowell stresses in his book how dramatically the disorder can negatively affect one's life and how important treatment is — yet he presents vastly outdated information and pretends it's new, doing a great disservice to ADHD sufferers like myself who want to heal.,I love the book - it has something of everything, from clinical vignettes to the how-tos. This is not my first book on ADHD, of course, I diagnosed myself while studying in university (and suffering badly - I still have the scars to prove it) via "You Mean I'm Not Crazy, Stupid or Lazy?!" by Kelly & Ramundo. Also recommended reading.
Dr Hallowell's book is well balanced, whether you're talking about treatment or diagnosis, and his expertise as a mental health professional shines through, without losing the human touch. One can laugh and cry while reading the brief histories of the cases he has seen. I recognise myself in many of his stories. The book kept me sane when I had to finish a 25,000 words final project for my graduate studies (in the mental health field, if you must know).
My only grouse is that I didn't know there was a revised version published in 2011. I haven't read the revised version, so this is a conjecture, but brain science has evolved a lot in the past 10-15 years, so I suspect there will be a lot more of this area covered in the new version. I wish Amazon would give a heads-up when there are revised versions of books.,Everything in my life makes sense now. Can be a bit repetitive, but I actually teared up reading some parts of this book because some of the anecdotes and feelings written there were EXACTLY what I had been feeling at some point in my life.,This is "THE classic go-to book, the one that started it all. Dr. Hallowell broke new ground with this book & helped to educate all the other MD's regarding/ understanding ADD/ ADHD.,Necessary reading for anyone who has a family member or friend non-compliant who has ADHD,I am an adult with ADHD. My wife is undiagnosed as are both my children. My son is two and my Daughter is five. I purchased this book because I have read it in the past and I knew it would be a great way to introduce her to the way I think. She is currently reading it and we have already made improvements with my daughters organization and ability to make decisions. I highly recommend this book to people who need to understand their children or spouses. The family chapter is dead on.,Great book so far. Easy to follow along and the words just flow. The authors were smart to include real life case examples as well; it humanizes all the medical descriptions and jargon. Wish the authors lived nearby because I like their approach to ADD/ADHD. I would definitely see them for my own struggles.,This has been such an invaluable resource. It is written from the best perspective; that of individual accounts that distinguish and differentiate how ADHD manifests. It really is a great start to understanding what is and what isn't ADHD. I feel I have a much better understanding of my daughter after having read this. Shame on me for not reading it sooner!
